Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Organizations in the African-Canadian-Caribbean Community have over the years appeared, flourished for a while, and then disappeared, often without a trace. Their history has not been recorded to be dissected by historians, sociologist, and other scholars other than to be added, as one more, to the list of defunct organizations. The Jamaican-Canadian Association (JCA) is in its 50th year and will start its 51st year in 2012. This book attempts to chronicle its origin, its survival struggles, its accomplishments, and activities that take place at the JCA. Survival to 50 is historic. Why has the JCA survived when so many others have failed? The contents of this book may reveal the survival formula. The road has not been easy. The path has not been clear, but survive it has--with solid accomplishments. It has nurtured and honed the talents and skills of its leaders and offered them for service in the wider community – Armstrong, Fuller, Williams, Gopie, Stewart and Bailey – to name a few. Others have served as well in less high profiled positions. Over the period it has acquired three headquarters – one was lost to fire. The other it outgrew. The third it presently occupies. The foundation has been laid but the future is not without its challenges. Another scribe, hopefully, will pen the history of the next 50 or whatever number of years it survives.
